Plum Island the first in the John Corey series was one of the best crime thrillers I've ever read. I thought John Corey was one of the most interesting characters I'd run into, and I couldn't wait to devour the rest of the series. But as I've progressed through the series, some of the luster has worn off.
Wild Fire was still a great book, and John Corey is still a great character, but he is progressing toward an exaggerated caricature of himself. He's even more insubordinate, more sarcastic, more irreverent, more everything. More and more I find myself cringing rather than laughing; and the fact that he still has his job with ATTF indicates a break with reality that undermines plot credibility.
I'll keep reading the series, but I'm down to 4 stars and I hope the trend doesn't continue. Corey in Action Again. Audio CD Verified Purchase. This takes place in upstate New York, where a cabal of neo-conservatives have decided to attack all Muslim countries if any US cities are terror targets.
Wild Fire by Nelson DeMille (John Corey Series, Book 4)
An agent from FBI's Anti-Terror Task Force is sent up to investigate and snoop around the exclusive club where these plotters are planning their dirty work, but is apprehended by security guards there and interrogated. He is then murdered. The plot thickens when Corey uncovers other details of the plot and then takes the unofficial, unsanctioned initiative to deal with the problem.
I purchased the audiobook, and Scott Brick does his usual outstanding job of portraying Corey. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. The suspense created by Corey's persistent determination as an investigator and loyal friend pervade the entire story. A few times the long expository scenes of dialogue are tedious, although maybe necessary for a plot of this complexity. The marital and professional relationship between Mr. Corey is comical and interesting although verging on ludicrous when Mrs. The most satisfying part of the story, as always with DeMille, is the penultimate scene in the bunker where justice is meted out with prejudice.
As others may have already said, the character of Bain Madox as a villain is finely drawn and oozes exquisite evil that justifies the remedy supplied by Mr.
Wild Fire (John Corey, book 4) by Nelson DeMille
Quite a satisfying thriller. What could have been a thriller was just a good read. I was also put off by the author's use of "informed" to indicate dialog. It distracted from the story in that I began anticipating it. Oh yeah, there it ius again. It becomes obvious in the early chapters that DeMille has done some diligent research for this novel particularly in the area of nuclear weaponry. The story is about potential nuclear annihilation of American cities and the Arab world.
It is instigated by a very wealthy but very evil man with the help of powerful persons in the highest positions of our government and business world. The evil plan is revealed to the reader in the first few chapters. John Corey and his FBI agent wife, Kate Mayfield, defy direct orders from their boss and, on their own, try to avert a nuclear terrorist plot. As in the past John Corey has a problem with authority and continues to strike out on his own dragging his sometimes reluctant wife and boss along with him.
Together, the husband and wife team give the story sex, humor and personality. The book, no different from previous Cory books, is laced with Corey's smart aleck, wisecracking one-lines. I suppose I have become more tolerant of this personality flaw as it didn't bother me as much as in previous writings. The book has enough scary twists and turns to keep the reader engaged. The last half is more interesting and intriguing than the first part. I recommend Wild Fire and give it a rating of 4 out of 5.

Once again the plot is of current times and terrors. The possibility of wacko nut cases sending the nation and planet into oblivion is very real and contemporary. It's all nonsense, and John and Kate have to think quickly, act decisively, and always outside the box because they don't know whom to trust. After anything is possible, and it is not the "ragheads" that are always to blame. This another wake up call and it will scare your britches off. There is a sense of urgency to the plot.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. This one was disappointing and for the life I've read a number of DeMille novels recently and have been very happy.
This one was disappointing and for the life of me, I can't see how this particular book warrants all the five-star and four-star ratings. The writing is generally fun and easy to read, but there's just way too much filler and not really that much plot. At one point I nearly quit reading, which would be a "first" for me for a DeMille book. Although you learn quite a lot of theories about TWA , essentially the story is just one very long search for a couple that may have filmed the crash. Unfortunately the search goes on far, far too long and in the end, nothing happens.
There's a coverup but never any explanation why there needed to be a coverup, and what is "revealed" cannot be reconciled with the official report or the other facts that are given. It doesn't matter, though, because the ending is telegraphed the minute you read that the flight went down in and he refers to attending a memorial for the fifth year anniversary. Since you can't have a fictional ending to a real event, the math telegraphs how the book must end.
Wild Fire : Number 4 in series (John Corey) -- Paperback [Paperback]
In the end, the entertainment value and information about various theories let me rate it a "three" but it's very close to a "two. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This book was great. To me, this makes the characters more interesting. I especially like how the narrator portrays John Corey, New York accent and all. His wisecracks and dry sense of humor are much funnier, and you get a better sense of who John Corey is. Once again, Nelson DeMille has knocked it out of the park.
The book is, for the most part, suspenseful throughout, especially the ending. There have been other reviews that go into more detail about the book, so I won't elaborate on those reviews, but I will say that it's a great book and I highly recommend it!
